Places to Visit in Kedarnath

Kedarnath, the pious destination in Uttarakhand, is one of the sacred Dham in Chota Char Dham. It's one of the most important pilgrimage sites for Hindus due to the presence of the Kedarnath Temple, at 3133 metres above sea level. As per the folklore, Shiva roams in the Garhwal Himalayas disguised as a bull to not relieve Pandavas from their guilt of killing their blood relatives.
When Pandavas found him, Shiva dove underground, and the bull's body parts scattering showed up at different places. Kedarnath is where the hump of the bull was found, making it one of the sacred places among Panch Kedar. It's a great destination for majestic sightseeing places in the surrounding area.
